BUENOS AIRES, Argentina, Feb. 9, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — CLISA (“Clisa” or the “Company“) today announced the results in connection with the previously announced consent solicitation according to which it solicited consents (“Consents“) from the holders (the “Noteholders“) of its outstanding Step-Up Senior Secured Notes due 2027 (CUSIP/ISIN No. 20445P AH8/ US20445PAH82 (144A) and P3063X AJ7/ USP3063XAJ74 (Reg. S)) (the “Notes“) to a proposed amendment (the “Proposed Amendment“) to the indenture dated as of August 17, 2021, among, inter alia, the Company and The Bank of New York Mellon (the “Indenture“) governing the Notes (the “Consent Solicitation“), involving the interest payment due on January 25, 2024.

The terms and conditions of the Consent Solicitation, as well as the Proposed Amendment, were described in the consent solicitation statement dated as of January 11, 2024 (the “Consent Solicitation Statement“).

The Company has been advised that, as of the Expiration Date (as described in the Consent Solicitation Statement), Noteholders of U.S.$ 321,327,118 in aggregate principal amount of the Notes, or approximately 93.56% of the outstanding Notes, have validly delivered their Consents under the Consent Solicitation. 

Pursuant to the Indenture, the Proposed Amendment required the prior Consent of Noteholders representing not less than 75% of the aggregate principal amount of the outstanding Notes (such Consents, the “Requisite Consents“).

Noteholders whose Consents were validly delivered and received prior to the Expiration Date, and which were not validly withdrawn or revoked, are entitled to receive a consent consideration of U.S.$3,250,000 to be divided pro rata among them (the “Consent Consideration“) on the Consent Consideration Payment Date (as described in the Consent Solicitation Statement). The Consent Consideration Payment Date is currently expected to be February 16, 2024. Non-consenting Noteholders will not receive the Consent Consideration.

The Proposed Amendment in relation to the method of payment of the interest under the Notes for the interest period beginning on July 25, 2023, and ending on January 25, 2024 (the “January 2024 Coupon“), consisted of changing (i) the portion in cash and (ii) the portion in kind, from 6.25% and 2.25%, respectively, to 0% and 8.50%, respectively, maintaining the total annual interest rate in 8.50%.

As previously announced, the Company has exercised the PIK Option in connection with the January 2024 Coupon under the terms of the Indenture as amended by the Proposed Amendment. Therefore, on the Consent Consideration Payment Date the Company will pay to each Noteholder, in connection with the January 2024 Coupon, interest as set forth below:
